Strangely, anthemic and urgently needed in these often divisive times, the stirring and surprisingly calming Americana single “Everyone Loves Everyone” by the Houston band Revival of the folk family seems like the perfect tune for an autumn day in the park.
So perfect timing for the band to take the stage at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center (4501 Woodway Dr.) for their first live music event, which is dubbed appropriately Concert in the courtyard. Founded by brothers Mason and Barrett Lankford, the family band will perform on Friday, September 10th from 6pm to 9pm.
Opened to legends like Willie Nelson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Merle Haggard and The Suffers, the Folk Family Revival is popular locally and nationally for high-pitched, catchy tunes that point to their roots in Magnolia, Texas.
The evening will also feature local singer-songwriter and guitarist Sara Van Buskirk, the food truck Lunchbox Hippies, raffle prizes and a lush setting.
Tickets to the concerts are $ 55 for members and $ 65 for non-members. Guests can also upgrade to a VIP table for six for an additional $ 120 – or put a blanket on the lawn. Admission for children is free, but from three years of age, advance registration is required.
Other shows scheduled include Tomar and the FCs on Friday November 12th and one more performance slated for March 25th 2022, with the act yet to be announced.
Tickets and information are available online.
